any ideas how the thread about the FEM(Solid Mechanics, Thermal Analysis) and CFD fundamentals should be named? I would suggest we add another thread in the forum but before we publish “Chapters” we post them in a seperate thread here in the Power Users Group and discuss what might be improved.
And it would be cool if we have responsible guys from the staff checking our chapters.
I would start with the Finite Element Method (preferably alone because I want to be consistent with my chapters but if you have ideas I will highlight that you gave me the inspiration ;-)) including the following points at the beginning:
• History of FEM
• Matrix Algebra
• Truss analysis (Derivation of the basic equations by analysing truss structures/beams)
• Strong/Weak form
• and so on…
I would also add some homework as an annex but without giving the solution. People doing the homework can send their ideas to me handwritten as a photo or scanned to me and I will correct them. As soon as they have a certain amount of points they receive a badge for the chapter they completed. I think that will be super cool and immensely motivates new users.
What do you think? Other wishes? Improvements?
